You really can’t beat the location of the Hilton in Berlin. Our upgraded room overlooked the Deutsches Dom in the Gendarmenmarkt; the hotel was just a short walk to the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, or Museum Island. If you didn’t want to walk, the Stadtmitte U-bahn station was in front of the hotel.
Our room had a king size bed with a lounge chair and a desk/chair. It was a bit cramped – I’ve been in bigger Hilton rooms while in Europe. The front desk staff were professional and a bit aloof, but to their benefit, they were dealing with long lines of people – it seemed there were always people waiting to check in or out, ask questions, or in need of some other assistance.
We had free internet and a free daily newspaper delivered to our door. A complimentary bottle of water was brought each day, although we dare not touch the mini bar since anything you remove is immediately charged to your room – whether you eat it or put it back in the fridge. A free hot buffet breakfast also came with our room – and it had just about anything you could want to eat…and then some. Chefs made omelets or you could have pancakes, eggs, sausage, cereals, meats and cheeses, a vast selection of breads and rolls, fruits, and even cheesecake!
On our final day, we checked out but still had several hours before catching the train. The concierge has a complimentary luggage holding system and they kept our belongings in a secure location until we were ready to head to the train station.
Being a Hilton, the room price was higher than other hotels; we paid approximately €100, but it included wi-fi, breakfast, newspaper, and water. And the rate is higher because of the fantastic location.
Would I stay here again? Yes, but only if I needed to be in the Berlin Mitte part of town. The price was a bit steep considering we weren’t in the room except to shower and sleep.
Directions: Across the street from the Deutsches Dom and the Gendarmenmarkt
Hilton hotel of Berlin is perfectly located, the main entrance is from Mohrenstrasse but actually it is located almost at the Gendarmenmarkt. The hotel was recently refurbished and offers special prices for bookings in advance. In case you bokk the room 3 weeks in advance the price fro a room starts from euros 69.
The Hilton is well located by the Gendarmenmarkt, with a S Bahn access right outside. The concierge was very helpful, but there were a number of times that I had to wait. With a hotel that large, there should be an additional person at peak question time. The rooms are excellent, and the exercise room and pool were nice to pump a little iron and a relaxing swim. The large lounge and bar was comfortable and you could get a brew and listen to live piano. The price was reasonable for a major city hotel at 155 E, plus tax.
This hotel was perfect. The staff was very friendly and went out of there way to help.
It always felt like I was coming home at the end of the day.
Highly recommended and I will stay there again.
Unique Quality: The Trader Vic's Restaurant was excellent and we visited more than once.
Directions: Next to Gendarmenmarkt, Major Berlin attractions such as Brandenburg Gate are within a mile.
The Stadtmitte metro station is situated in front of the hotel.
The Hilton Hotel is fairly new and has a quiet central location with all the main tourist sites within walking distance, and I was fortunate enough to have a room over looking Gendarmenmarkt with a large window. The standard rooms come with mini bar, room safe, direct dial telephone, internet connection and kettle with various drinks and the rooms are of a reasonable size. The well lit bathroom comes with a bath, shower and hairdryer, as well as the usual equipment. On arrival some cake and chocolates were provided and some fruit halfway during my stay. The pay for view movies were expensive, not recent and are available on dvd. I tried the large swimming pool a couple of times and was lucky one day to have it to myself for 20 minutes. The breakfast choice is vast and includes traditional fry up and with choice of types of cooked eggs. The best part was the fresh fruit salad. If you only eat a small amount for breakfast I would suggest eating somewhere else. As the cost of breakfast is 23 euros its only value for money if you pig out and its easy to spend a couple of hours trying the different foods. There is also a choice of different restaurants in the hotel or close by in the area. The Stadmitte underground station is conveniently just outside the front of the hotel for the U2 line though you have to walk about 400m for the U6 line. The hotel aways had plenty of friendly staff available though the restaurant for breakfast and the reception appeared busy at peak times.
Directions: The Hotel stands on the southern side of the Gendarmenmarkt.
I had a room on the sixt floor facing a very quit patio so you can sleep well even with open window.
The gym and pool access is included with the room rate but sauna is additional EUR 11 per person. There are separate saunas for male and female.
Breakfast is EUR 22 and offers excellent quality.
Unique Quality: Hilton offers an executive room at a higher rate (or free upgrade for GOLD members). All these executive rooms are on the sixt floor which offers free Lounge access. This executive lounge serves breakfast, snacks and all kinds of beverages including wine and beer.
Directions: at the Gendarmenmarkt
Hotel is ok, nothing remarkable. Gym isn't too good - few treadmills, couple machines, and light dumbells.
The one negative that I experienced is that I took the train to Berline and then the metro...except the metro stops at like midnight or 1am...hotel didn't mention that to me and they also couldn't then tell me what bus I might want to get instead. Overall the customer service at the hotel wasn't anything to write home about.
Unique Quality: Hotel let me borrow an umbrella....which was a good thing as it poured the day I was there.
You can walk to Brandenburg Gate easily and the subway is right out the door. The breakfast buffet is incredible and the spa as well. The bathrooms are tiny but ask for a top floor room to see the views. Really classy, great piano bar in the lobby, Trader Vic's in the basement, safe streets all around.
Directions: Mitte--old East Berlin
Very nice hotel, very comfortable rooms, some have balconies overlooking a beautiful church and square. Service was excellent and the staff was very nice -all capable of English.

Directions: East Berlin. Located on the U2 Stadtmitte stop.

Unique Quality: We liked most the view over the famous Gendarmenmarkt, were you can sit outside in restaurants and cafes in the evening. A subway station is nearby, so that you have good start for Berlin sightsseing.
It's not too expensive, but has all the things high quality hotels need. We enjoyed our stay.

This was the last stop on a 5 city itinerary. I had two free nights from Hilton HHonors points. What I didn't expect was that I would be upgraded to a club level room on the 6th floor due to my Hilton VIP status. The room had a stunning view of Gendarmentmarkt. The club lounge offered free breakfast, open bar, and a staff ready to help any way that they could. This was a wonderful way to conclude a European trip.
Unique Quality: I hadn't been in a Trader Vic's in years. Great place for a cocktail to start the evening.
Directions: A few block south of Unter den Linden, within walking distance of Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburger Tor, etc.
Wonderful lobby with beautiful waterfall cascading in the center. Antique style furniture throughout.
The pool is 4 feet throughout and more of a place to unwind by reading a book than to cannonball. Beatifull and relaxing.
Unique Quality: In the middle of Berlin. Subway entrance is only 100 feet from the front door of the hotel.
